About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced humanistic counsellor who is passionate about supporting you to explore what brings you to therapy. At the heart of my approach is building a trusting, honest and open relationship with my clients to enable to the most successful of therapeutic journeys. 

Whether you are feeling trapped by anxiety, overwhelmed with grief or stuck in a toxic relationship, I can help you to navigate these difficult feelings and emotions, find your true sense of self again and rediscover the clarity you may have lost. 

I have a private practice in Lewes where I will provide you with a calm space and experience of working with a varied client base. I work in a person-centred way which means through support, I believe you have the ability to make the positive changes you need and with a humanistic approach my focus is on you as a unique individual.

My specialist areas are working with long-term ill health, bereavement and loss, however this is by no means exhaustive.

I offer support for a full range of issues, some of which include:

anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress, trauma, abuse, gambling, self-esteem.

Working together we can move through or overcome your challenges, enabling greater control over which path to follow next. 

Practice description

Alongside my private practice I work for the NHS at Sussex Cancer Centre supporting cancer patients and their families through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. I am also a counsellor at Sussex MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Centre in Brighton and a low cost community counselling service in Newhaven.  I have previously worked as a bereavement counsellor at St. Wilfrid's Hospice in Eastbourne.

I am qualified in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which can be used to help accept difficult life experiences as they happen and build a more compassionate relationship with these challenging experiences.

Additional training I have completed includes Transactional Analysis (TA101), trauma, suicide, complex grief and gambling addiction.
